Stopped in Derry on Sunday 6th June on way home from Donegal. Hadn’t booked and felt there was little or no chance of getting a table for two. However Columb who met us at the reception for the restaurant checked with the restaurant manager Amanda and lo and behold there was a cancellation and we got a table. Bishop’s Gate Hotel is a top class hotel and for us on this visit what impressed us most was the staff, their friendliness and their amazing service. Amanda, the restaurant manager, is one of the best I have seen for her professionalism and attention to detail, very welcoming to us and making sure we had a great first visit to the hotel. Sarah served us our very appetising meal of a goat’s cheese starter, two steaks and a beautiful apple pie dessert. We had a great dining experience at the Bishop’s Gate Hotel and can’t wait to return.

Without doubt, this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. From the moment you enter its doors until you leave, your stay is special. Wonderful staff, fabulous rooms, beautifully furnished and amazing food. We stayed on a Hideaway package which was exceptional value.

We recently returned from a 2 night stay with dinner bed and breakfast. Celebrating 3 special occasions. From the friendly welcome we received on arrival to our departure we couldn't speak highly enough of every member of staff . The hotel meets all Covid 19 regulations in an unobtrusive way. At all times we felt safe and secure. The Wig + Gown restaurant always serves high quality food on this visit we found the food exceptional. The menu is varied and food is cooked to perfection. The cleanliness of this hotel is maintained to a very high standard. I have a serious food allergy which can be life threatening and this is always noted indeed I believe all the staff I come in contact with are aware of this at all times. It is such a pleasant and relaxing experience to stay in the Bishopsgate Hotel that we have already booked our next stay and look forward to enjoying their afternoon tea experience.

Well as usual Bishops Gate do not fail to impress. We had a beautiful night for my sons 17th birthday. The food was outstanding as usual the staff were so lovely and the atmosphere , even during these tough times was second to none. They made us feel very special and a wonderful night was had by all. Five star service all round and a must for anyone who enjoys excellent food in beautiful surroundings.
